Not only does this book have the power to impact healthcare providers, but it also will provide much comfort to patients who have experienced the fears, questions, and life-changing views that come from being dependent on others for medical and emotional care. For many of us still going through health challenges, this book will remind us that what we are feeling is not unusual... It's normal. It will provide comfort perhaps in a similar way that a family might. By sharing his thoughts, Mr. Boyle is creating an extended family of people who 'get it,' from the standpoint of medical uncertainty. It will also help family members of these patients to feel what their loved ones may be experiencing. Books like this are a gift to family members who walk beside their loved ones but cannot actually walk in their shoes. This gives them a taste of what those shoes may feel like in a non-threatening way. Books like this can actually save a relationship of a family 'broken apart' by healthcare challenges - a true gift!
Brian Boyle has become such a role model for people facing adversity related to being a patient, as well as a strong spokesperson for the importance of blood donation. After reading this book, it is my hope that all healthcare curriculums include this as required reading: from medical assistants, vet techs, dental professionals, paramedics, EMTs, nurses, doctors, and even administrative professionals in healthcare environments. I also hope that the instructors of these many curriculums take the teachings of this book many steps further to include classroom discussion of the importance of caring for the entire family of a patient. If that happense, Brian Boyle's reach will truly impact the healthcare world in the way I believe he is hoping he can! I would recommend this amazing work to anyone and everyone! Great job Brian And Thank You!!
